Screw the UN. They have a globalist agenda. Some of their
marked vehicles have been seen in our rural and woodland
areas. What does that say about the true nature of our
own government? Just something to think about as our
country gets ready to enforce a UN resolution on Iraq.
Who's to say when it will be our time for a UN resolution
of disarmament.

The UN is made up of a group of people, concerned about the security of other member states. HA! What a much of commie yellow sissy $hit!

They should be concerned about the potential deadly effects that Saddam Hussein character can have on the entire world. Instead, they are only concerned that the only super power left to serve and protect their liberties and freedoms may be exercising their supreme power too far and too much. They want to keep us in "check" while we are using every line of civilized logic and reason to gardner their support for when we have to take this demon out! They just don't want any "blood" on their hands. They are a band of sissy's waiting for their big sister to do her job. We will too, and they know it.

Sure wish we would start taking that tryrant out of the middle east. At least the United States of Amercia has the backbone to make a decision and then take the action required to do that which is right.

Last time we were in Iraq they wanted us to wear the blue covers on our pots, ha. Our job is to locate, close with, and destroy the enemy, with fire and manuveor, not make tea and kiss butt!! Colin Powell just showed everyone that the Iraqi's are running from the U.N. I think they have a deal, nobody is that stupid. They are laughing in our faces hiding behind the U.N. They are calling our proof hollywood special effects. I say it is a U.N. and Iraqi smokescreen. They used cardboard tanks and smokepots in the gulf war that didn't work! Now they are playing hide and go seek! They are forgetting who they are playing with!!

UN = coffee shop = chat time and glad handing in nice suits. Time to change the name. They could retain the UN bit, but it would now be part of a banner on the front of the building which would read
"UNder new Management - See Dubya - he da man"

UN strike force?? Half of em believe that means to go on strike. They already have a strike force-it's called the US MARINES!! But They neeed us-but we don't need the UN.

I agree that the UN appears to be a spent force. However, you may sense a degree of unease from the Germans and French about the way froward. Although everyone I know is supporting the US of A in the struggle against terrorism, an increasingly vocal majority are querying the right of one nation, mightier than the rest to declare itself the arbiter of right and wrong.
Whether you like me saying this is neither here nor there, the fact is that outside the US many people are saying just that. The Korean situation has enhanced their argument. Dubya hasn't planned to wander over the fence at the 49th because he knows Kim will press the tiny red button as soon as he'd zip up his Elvis suit. consequently some of POTUS' standing has been undermined.
One probable outcome of all this over the next 10 years may be a retrenchment of the US into a more isolationist policy and protection of the homeland. I sincerely hope not, but the signs are there.

of course, the greatest country since Rome could always play hardball with all these other countries.

Stop all forms of forgein aid. Stop all funding of any type of projects the USA is helping. Stop all defense programs. Pull everything of our's out of their countries. Cease every form of aid.

Uhmm...bit they would all start changing their tune in less than one quarter of a heart beat. We would just start the process and all the belly aching would begin. But imagine the relief to the US Tax Payer!

One point to consider....

IF... in 1938 or 39, had Churchill launched a pre-emptive strike on Germany, the world would be a different place. I don't think anybody would dispute that. No WWII (maybe), no Holacaust... etc.

BUT... would Churchill have been considered a 'war-monger', or acting too big and strong, or what ever the world is thinking about the U.S. right now?

George W. may be in the same spot. History tells us Churchill WOULD have saved Millions of lives.... will we if we go ???

Just a thought.

Sox, the difference in '39 was that Churchill did not have the means to carry out a pre-emptive strike, he was not in fact Prime Minister, he was in the wilderness. A hawk, detested by the liberal elite who had failed to listen to his warnings, and take note of their own intelligence service. I believe Hitler would have been far more wary of Gt Britain if Churchill had been in the negotiating seat. As it was we sent the school chess team!
The main thrust of opinion remains, and has been the same for many years, we should have finished the job in '91. Iraq was wide open, there was no obstruction from any Arab country, all the opposition was in the talking shops in Washington and London. Scared of shadows? Whatifs?

woulda, shoulda, coulda. we woulda totally dessimated iraq's military in 5 more days if the whining blue hatters woulda shut their mouths and let norm finish it! the bleeding heart liberals are still crying overkill on our part. how may of you were there on the morning after death highway. I was. to me it was an absolute victory over killers rapists and thugs and thieves. to the liberal "elite" ( i hate that word) it was uncalled for overkill, and straight out murder. even in our judicial system if you kill a person who is trying to kill you its called self defense, most of the crispy criiters i saw were holding rifles or sitting behind anti- aircraft weapons. MURDER? i think not. the 16 year old girl my second fire team found in an industrial dryer still tethered by an ambilical cord to her unborn child, that was murder. I only hope we killed responsible parties that night ,if not we will this time.

Now I'm worried, Somebody agrees with me. I'm going home to think about this, perhaps my tactics need revision. Leroy, y'all stop that it destabilises me.

UN Strike Force sounds like one of those oxymorons. Jumbo shrimp, squared away sh*t bird.
